Advancing Control to provide new value to physicians and staff.
The art of endoscopy requires having the right tools to deliver the best possible patient care. The EVIS EXERA III endoscopy system is a leap forward in ease-of-use functionality and state-of-the-art technologies. The result is a system that helps physicians conduct procedures efficiently, and helps GI staff members perform setup and reprocessing tasks with ease.
As the undisputed leader in endoscopy products, OLYMPUS is committed to offering a wide variety of products and capabilities targeted at the most challenging requirements of colonoscopy, from insertion and manipulation to diagnosis and treatment. That commitment is what drives us to achieve our ultimate goals — increasing patient comfort and physician confidence by facilitating safe, reliable, efficient procedures.
Responsive Insertion Technology
RIT comes as standard on EVIS EXERA III 190 Series colonoscopes. It is a unique combination of three proprietary OLYMPUS technologies: PB (Passive Bending), HFT (High Force Transmission), and variable stiffness*. These technologies work together to improve ease of insertion and operator control, which may help to minimize patient discomfort and enhance procedural efficiency.
*PCF-PH190L/I has PB and HFT only.
PB helps EVIS EXERA III 190 Series colonoscopes move through acute bends in the colon. When the scope meets with resistance, the pressure is redistributed so that the insertion tube automatically bends to adjust to the contours of the colon, potentially decreasing patient discomfort and speeding insertion to the cecum.
High Force Transmission
HFT provides improved operator control for pushing, pulling, and twisting maneuvers. Whenever the scope is pushed forward or rotated, the pushing force or rotational torque is transmitted down the length of the insertion tube, meaning the scope reacts more sensitively to physician handling and is easier to maneuver within the colon.
Variable stiffness allows the flexibility of OLYMPUS scopes to be changed incrementally by manipulating a flexibility adjustment ring. This innovative feature allows the scope to be adjusted on a case-by-case basis, to meet the unique anatomical needs of the patient and the handling preferences of the physician.
ScopeGuide is designed to provide a real-time, three-dimensional image of the shape and configuration of the colonoscope during a procedure, and is integrated in the EVIS EXERA III system. The ability to visualize the scope inside the body allows the physician to see loop formations as they occur for expedited loop management. It can also assist with scope insertion and help optimize scope handling, which may shorten procedure times and minimize patient discomfort even during difficult colonoscopies.
